Abstract

This article argues for the importance of work in print and newspaper history written before the 1960s. That decade is seen as marking a break in the way the topic was approached with work prior to the 1960s being criticised for narrowness and theoretical weaknesses. The article points to the sophistication of research and writing prior to 1960, in popular and more scholarly focused work. It argues that the historiography of this topic should be understood in terms of longer processes of development and institutional constraints which correlate with similar developments in other areas of historical research.
